FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE June 16, 2022
SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. – Weekly updates from the Snohomish Health District on preliminary case counts, case rates, and additional COVID-19 data will look different starting June 21.
The detailed monthly reports also have some changes starting with the report published in June for data through May 2022.
The Health District currently produces regular COVID updates, available online at www.snohd.org/casecounts. While these reports will continue, modifications are being done to keep the focus on key metrics while reducing duplication of effort in data reporting between the Snohomish Health District and the Washington State Department of Health (DOH).
An extensive COVID dashboard is available online from DOH, with the ability to narrow down to county-level data.
The changes to local data reporting include:
Data at the county-level for disease activity, testing and vaccination is available using the state dashboard.
Given the length of the pandemic and the sheer number of total cases, cumulative counts are no longer as useful for planning and disease prevention as other metrics, such as 7-day rates or hospitalization numbers.
Weekly data updates typically are posted to the case counts page and Health District social media channels on Mondays, except for holidays. This will continue to be the schedule after June 21.
